Robin's Nest Design Team!!!

So today's the day I can announce that I made it to the Robin's Nest design team!!! Here is the card that I used for my application a while ago:

I used Robin's Nest Paper and rub ons (the clock and the frame). The digi is from Tiddlyinks, inked with Copic markers.  Ribbon, stamped sentiments, and rhinestones are from Stampin Up!

I will be doing cards for them and how-to videos! :)  Can't wait to start designing with their awesome product!

On a personal note, I made it on my 16 hour road trip to Indiana!  I'm here for little sissy's wedding tonight.  I also found a home in Connecticut, we move in on the 8th! I've been living out of my suitcase for the past 3 weeks now, so lots of fun adventures! I hope to be blogging regularly after the 8th. I can't wait to catch up and see what you guys have been creating! Miss you all!!!

New Challenge at Lia Stampz!

Hey guys!  There's a new challenge at Lia Stampz! This fortnight, its everyone's favorite... ANYTHING GOES!

The winner of the challenge will get an awesome digi (you can get it at Whimsy Stamps here). I used it on my card here:

Inked up the toy plane with Copic markers. Added some retired paper, cardstock, and ribbon from Stampin Up. The sentiment is computer generated and punched out with a retired SU punch.

Can't wait to see what you guys create!

New Challenge Over at Scribbles Designs

Hey hey! So, its the 15th, which means I am probably half packed up and out and checked into my first hotel in this long moving process (I scheduled this post beforehand, so its actually before moving day for me). :) Hubby did purchase a laptop that we're waiting on so I will be able to update the blog and see what you guys are up to.  Can't wait to start the new adventure!


We've got a new challenge over at Scribbles Designs!  This month, we want to see your manly projects! Here's mine:

We are sponsored by Bugaboo!!! So the super cute BBQ guy is from Bugaboo.  Inked him up with Copics and added a sentiment by Scribbles Designs.  Used my SU honeycomb embossing folder, added some scrap paper banners and some clear dew drops from Robin's Nest. 

You don't need a Scribbles image to play, but if you do use a Scribbles image, however, you can enter as many times as you wish.  Go here to play with us!

Wanna get the Happy Birthday sentiment digi or any other of Scribble's designs? Check out the Scribbles Designs store! 

Can't wait to see what you guys create!
